Dr. No Effects Unleashes the Evil MotherFuzzer

Dr. No Effects Unleashes the Evil MotherFuzzer

Dr.No collaborates with Dutch guitarist Pablo van de Poel to develop another rare beast.

Eindhoven, Netherlands (August 06, 2014) -- Almost two years ago Dr.No and Pablo (both Fuzz addicts) formed a pact started a collaboration with final goal, “getting you the best Fuzz of the universe”, that after many prototypes resulted in the amazing Evil Motherfuzzer. Primary goal was to combine "Art" and "Music" within an artistic expression from both artists by creating a limited run on a hand build guitar effect that really needed to stand out on tone and experience.

This old school classic reinvented fuzz contains two rare NOS High Gain AC128 matched pair Germanium Transistors that are collected and brought together from places all over the world (yes…even from a radio museum). The Evil Motherfuzzer has this PNP Positive ground on the main hand build circuit board, but no worries… the Evil MotherFuzzer contains a little brain that turns that around to negative ground so you don’t have to worry about daisy chaining your Germanium Fuzz with other effects in your chain that in other cases cause trouble.

Because of the rarity of the old Germanium trannies the edition is extremely limited. Only 74 copies can be build……worldwide. With again an amazing graphic design, and fully hand build with all selected and high end components that makes this Fuzz to become a new classic for true tone connoisseurs. As a cool bonus the Evil MotherFuzzer is handsigned by Pablo van de Poel as well as Dr.No.

Specs:

  • Volume: Output control level. Even when the volume knob turned counter clockwise, an amazing tone and fuzz will stand out.
  • Fuzz: The Fuzz knob controls the amount of “Evil Fuzz”. To have a cool “clean up sound”, leave your Fuzz dail knob fully open and try to lower your volume on your guitar or volume pedal. Also when lowering the Fuzz, a very organic tone will remain.
  • Contour: This knob allows you to play and dial with Harmonic tone, Sustain. It also adds clarity to your midrange.
  • Bias: The Bias knob gives you the opportunity to leave out the “fat”, “bass” when lowering the dial knob . This allows you to have other effects like Wah Wah,s run through without losing them in your signal.

Pricing information: Street $316.50 (€237)
